Writer/Director Aaron Beckum release's latest short film, “Born Forlorn," a dry adventure comedy, about a down on his luck country/western singer who tries to make it to Hollywood by driving 100 mph through the middle of the desert.

The film was a lo-fi, no-budget passion project made with the help of some of Beckum’s usual collaborators. Drew Bienemann (Director of Photography) donated the last of the Fuji 35mm film from his freezer and threw in his old Toyota Camry for good measure…which they promptly set about trying to destroy completely.

The experimental film showcases what Beckum is best known for. In addition to his subtle oddball humor, “Born Forlorn” follows in his trend of working with non-actors and using lo-fi practical effects and selective color palettes. Beckum, who plays the film’s country/western singer Dion Horn, doesn’t usually act, but he realized it’s not that far off from performing live music, which he has done for years.
